ART On-Site Wellness and Athletico

Marketing Team

Active Release Techniques® (ART®) ART On-Site Wellness and Athletico are both reputable services that train health care professionals for workplace wellness programs.

Both are employee wellness programs but have different areas of specialization that set them apart.

What is ART treatment?

ART treatment is a non-invasive system that treats soft-tissue and nerve dysfunction at the source. This hands-on treatment combines provider touch, pressure, and tension with patient movement to pinpoint and treat the origin of the affected area.

What is an ART Elite Provider?

EPs are part of the Elite Provider Network (EPN): the only team of professionals qualified to provide ART treatment in the workplace.

Elite Providers represent the top 2% of all ART Certified Providers in the world. Learn more about what makes them the best of the best here.

Not only is ART treatment quick, it’s also insanely effective. Over 80% of soft-tissue dysfunction is solved in five or fewer treatment sessions.

What is ART On-Site Wellness?

ART On-Site Wellness Programs place an ART Elite Provider™ (EP) on-site at corporate facilities. An EP visits on a weekly basis to treat employees with ART treatment. For many companies, utilization of ART treatment at their workplace is a means to prevent soft-tissue dysfunction from developing into full-blown injury, creating a recordable or worse, a workers’ compensation claim.

The ripple effects of employees experiencing freedom from pain are easy to see:

  • Improved productivity
  • Decreased turnover
  • Reduced workers’ compensation costs and OSHA recordables
  • Time savings for management and leadership

With ART On-site Wellness, employees receive treatment on-site and treatment sessions are quick, lasting 15 minutes per employee.

What does ART treat? 

ART treatment will reduce employee pain and improve their function.

ART commonly treats:

  • Back pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Foot pain
  • Migraines + headaches
  • Sciatic pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Hip pain
  • Knee pain
  • Sprains, strains, + more
What is Athletico?

An Athletico Industrial Wellness Specialist provides on-site, job-specific treatment to employees. The treatment ranges from physical therapy, hand therapy, and occupational therapy.

Their goal is to prevent and treat various musculoskeletal conditions and injuries.

Athletico hires physical and occupational therapists and athletic trainers to provide rehabilitation services.

What does Athletico do?

To promote workplace wellness, Athletico offers prevention and treatment services.

Prevention services include:

  1. Exams to ensure employees can perform their jobs.
  2. Educating employees on safety protocols to prevent workplace injuries.
  3. On-site health care provider to alleviate pain and prevent further injuries.

Treatment services include:

  1. Provide job-specific rehabilitation treatment.
  2. Strength and conditioning exercises to allow employees to perform job tasks without pain.
  3. Reintegrate employees into their job duties and perform how they did prior to their injuries.
How are they different?

The major differences between both on-site wellness programs lie in the approach.

On-site ART treatment only utilizes ART protocols, the ART Diagnostic Algorithm, and the EPs touch only to optimize performance and health while resolving conditions.

Athletico’s on-site program offers a broader range of services within the physical therapy scope to alleviate pain.
